Vision Benefits

It won’t be hard to look on the bright side with vision benefits through VSP. Annual exams, lenses, frames and contacts (in lieu of lenses and frames) are covered once per calendar year.

In addition to protecting your eyesight, regular eye exams can also lead to early detection of other diseases, like diabetes and high blood pressure.

Getting exams and glasses or contacts in-network will be easy with retailers such as Costco, Visionworks and Cohen’s Fashion Optical all included in VSP’s retail chain providers. See a complete list of VSP’s retail chain providers at
